EL VY, the collaboration project of Menomena’s Brent Knopf and The National’s Matt Berninger, has released a new track in anticipation of their debut album, Return to the Moon, on Oct. 30.
“Paul is Alive” is the fourth track released from the new album.
“I think ‘Paul Is Alive’ is about finally finding the water that you can breathe in, finding a place or a person that makes you feel like you,” said Berninger in a statement. “It’s very much my story of what Cincinnati was like, growing up and falling in love with music, discovering these little places where like-minded people could find each other.”
Knopf and Berninger’s longstanding friendship eventually led to the formation of EL VY in the winter of 2014, according to a press release.
